May 19th in Downtown Atlanta -- Streets Alive

Postby jritger » Tue Apr 16, 2013 9:00 pm

Disc golf has been invited to participate in Streets Alive on May 19th, 2013. This is a very cool street festival that attracts 20,000+ people where they close down Peachtree Street for the afternoon.

We're working on setting up a temporary course in Ansley Park about 1 block off the route. Details are not set yet, but this should be an awesome event, so mark your calendar.

I'm looking for help in organizing and running this event. I don't have time to take it on. Everything is lined up, just need somebody to run with it. The 10 acre park has been reserved by the city for a disc golf course. Kelly Legette has a course layout there and can meet with you to show you his ideas ... then it needs to be adapted to this event for a 9+ hole course. The event is a street party with about 20,000 people coming through, and the idea is we have a course that is playable during the event to get a lot of new people exposed to DG. So it would need to be friendly to beginners and advanced players (two teepads?). Event is from 2p-6p; if somebody wanted to setup early and run action, that's possible too.

Reminder that this event is Sunday. Kelly and Daniel have created a 9-hole course in winn park and disc caddie bob will be running the event. I saw a press release today that 27,500 people are expected for streets Alive. Come on down and hang out

Note that streets will be closed down at 2pm, so plan accordingly

We'll be out there early if anyone would like to throw some safari holes. The course for the event is set up for beginners, but there are some great shots out there. Come on by earlier to pay safari and come by later for the actual event. Winn park in midtown.

Any chance you (or somebody) could pick them up from my house? I can bring them back at the end of the event.
